Very sad indeed. I was just starting to get to know her, she was instrumental in getting the asylum geared up for streaming.

She was one of a kind. We knew this day was coming, but still it's very hard to see a friend like her leave this earth.

RIP Norma/Michelle.  :'( You will be missed by many.

Norma, Michelle,

You are a wonderful person and this world will dearly miss you. Thank you so much for teaching me how to be a tournament director and teaching me how to be a skillful player. If it weren't for you, I wouldn't have been able to run all of my tournaments. I always appreciated when you would come into the store, and would play games with us and let us know what adjustments we would need.

Thank you for everything you've done not just for me, but for the pinball community. You were an amazing person and an amazing player. I will miss you so much. Though we were only in each other's lives for a few years, thank you for making a profound impact on mine. I hope you rest in peace.

Hi, I'm Lauren

I am sorry I cannot be there.  Norma (Michelle) was a great person and a huge loss to the Village.
She is very missed.
